Gabrielle Bell Art Sale!

Gabrielle Bell is having an art sale on most of the July Diary that makes up jher book Truth is Fragmentary. Pages are a reasonable $100, shipping included. Bell is having the sale as a fundraiser, and while it’s neat to be able to get original art by a great cartoonist for next to nothing, it’s also telling that a cartoonist of Bell’s stature still has to sell art to makes ends meet. NYC, you’re bumming me out in a supreme fashion.

Bell also posted a new comic visible in the link.

To do tonight: Brooklyn Comes to Morningside Heights

It’s been a busy, busy few weeks of comics events in the NYC area, and here’s one more: the final event for the year in Columbia’s graphic novel program.

WonderCon, CCS, etc., etc.

• I regret to inform the dozens of people who were looking forward to my being there, that I won’t be at WonderCon after all. Some travel stuff and other factors made it unfeasible. I’m sad I won’t be seeing everyone, but not as sad that I won’t be complaining about the line at Starbucks every morning.

For those who are going, please take notes!

• I will be at the Center for Cartoon Studies for THE FIRST TIME EVER this Thursday for Industry Day, if all goes well.

• Beside CCS, I am going to the dentist today, because I have a “situation” which is teetering on the edge of something…bad. So of course I read this.

The exciting news in all this is that Gabrielle Bell has a Tumblr now!

The book will be in full color and sport an intro by Aaron Cometbus.

Bell’s wistful, wry observations on observing life have been getting better and better. They are “literary comics” in the truest sense.

The definitive account of SD10, just as great as it began. Can’t wait for the Uncivilized Books version of this epic of epicness.
